  1. Gnick! You have a ban on hose pipe use over there?? What is a hose pipe? Like, a regular garden hose?. .. ...:huh:.. . ...and why can't you water things if there has been so much rain -- wouldn't there be a bloody surplus of the stuff?

    Bet yer English country gardens look beautiful!

    T'is a paradox indeed Emmel!

    It's been one of the driest winters on record, the reservoirs have run low and so a (garden) hosepipe ban was put in place.

    As soon as this was in place it rained virtually EVERY day in April (it's still not enough though to top up the reservoirs for our water supply dry.gif)

    SOoo, as the ground is so dry & unporous, the heavy rain has just run off of it causing flash floods.

    Fascinating eh? blink.gif

  2. Hey Geoss!!! Love the chickies (laugh.gif drumstick) ♥


    I done did it peeps...I ran 26.2 miles in 5hrs 6 minutes!!!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

    WHAT a mind blowing experience!, emotional to say the least!! Laughter, smiles, pain, tears all rolled into one day I'll never forget!!

    Am walking like a broken chicken now and have to go backwards on my bum up the stairs. Getting off the loo is a bit of a problem too wink.gif

  3. Much to catch up on!....not enough hourS in the day!! blink.gif

    This is un- Psilly but I guess this is where to put it.

    My mom has some heart issues. A Fib occasionally and an aortic heart valve that functions at about 30%. We have been managing this and we're planning to enroll in a study of a percutaneous replacement valve.

    Tuesday night, she had a stroke. At first, it didn't look too bad. Then Wed, she had some odd heart emzymes and a bleed was showing up in her brain. As of today it seems she isn't as bad as it looked yesterday. It appears her left arm, leg and side of her face are affected. She has some movement. The Rehab doc saw her this evening. He thinks she can regain most of her function with rehab.

    Anyway, that's what's been going on here.

    K, I'm really sorry to hear this.

    My Mum has also had a stroke (well 2 actually - but she needed to even the score out as she's also had 2 heart attacks rolleyes.gif)

    She has recovered far better than we thought possible (although with my Mum it didn't affect movement or speech - her sight and feeling in the left side was affected)

    The brain is a pretty magnificent thing the way it compensates.

    Hoping for a speedy recovery for your Mum x
